I really enjoy this beer. Hops are crisp and citrusy. Good color and head; this beer has substance. If you see this in the store or on tap, its definitely worth a try.

Its always a bummer to get local beers as part of a Beer of the Month Club shipment. =( Appearance: Copper-orange in color, with tiny white sudsy bubbles comprising a thin head. Smell: The scent is fairly tender, even after giving it some time to warm up and awaken. Still, though, theres a delicate aroma of light fruits (orange zest), bread, and honey. Taste: Citrus hop flavor is low and nicely balanced with a modest amount of sweet malt flavor. A gentle grassy hop bitterness provides for a nice finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a good amount of carbonation (almost spritzy at times). Though its a simple, mild beer, it is still crisp and pleasantly refreshing. Drinkability: A good choice for a local session beer, and quite pleasant on a rather warm late-Winter day. So, thats it. Another beer from Georgia. And now, time to go back to... work. Ugh.

(Bottle (best by 7/3/07) via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=2 target=blank>CaptainCougar, thanks Tom!) Kind of a nice hot weather beer...Pours slightly cloudy yellow-gold with a rocky off-white head. Aroma of bread, vanilla, fruity and flowery hops. Mouthfeel rather watery, a bit prickly. Taste is bread dough and hint of vanilla overlain with some hop fruitiness and light floweriness. Kind of a bitter tang through finish. Pretty hoppy. Nice refreshing kind of beer.

12 oz Bottle: This was a pretty tastey beer. It;d been far too long since Id had a good APA, and thats what this is. A good solid, APA. Nothing out of this world, but above average on all counts.

Courtesy pintocb. Clear gold and a large frothy, white head. Spicy, floral, lightly resinous hops with nearly enough malt to balance. Aroma is similar but muted. Finishes a bit grainy. Medium/light body, balanced, very drinkable. Decent pale.

This was a nice beer. It poured light golden brown and had a firm head. The aromatic notes certainly pushed through with light hints of citrus and hops. The moutfeel was outstanding and just the right balance of bitterness and crispness.

Not the best attributes..but I will buy it again...a slightly above average APA...gets the 3.5 due to its drinkability...

Real nice brew here, be a good session beer, as they say. Good hop profile for sure, compartive to the hometown Summit Extra pale ale, but doenst have quite as much bite as that one. Very easy to drink.
